Breakers bring back Kevin Braswell

6:45 pm on 1 September 2010

The New Zealand Breakers have finalised their playing roster for the Australian National Basketball League season with the return of combo-guard Kevin Braswell after his brief but successful appearance at the end of last season.

Braswell's arrival coincided with a six game winning run that nearly took the Breakers to the play offs and his vision and passing game were creditted with helping to give Kirk Penney and CJ Bruton the room to shine offensively

The ability to bring out the best in others was key to Braswell's

signing, and coach Andrej Lemanis says he rounds out the roaster nicely.

Lemanis says Braswell is prepared to sacrifice individual glories for the good of the team and the players are keen to have the 31-year-old American back.
